True love takes a twisted turn in the second book of this modern Gothic romance trilogy channeling the dark brilliance of Edgar Allan Poe.While Varen remains a prisoner in a perilous dream world where the terrifying stories of Edgar Allan Poe come to life, Isobel travels to Baltimore to confront the dark figure known throughout the world as the Poe Toaster. This man, the same man who once appeared to Isobel in her dreams and abandoned her in Varen’s nightmare world, holds the key to saving Varen.

But when Isobel discovers a way to return to this dream world, she finds herself swept up in a realm that not only holds remnants of Edgar Allan Poe’s presence, but has also now taken on the characteristics of Varen’s innermost self. It is a dark world of fear, terror, and anger.

When Isobel once more encounters Varen, she finds him changed. And now Isobel must face a new adversary—one who also happens to be her greatest love.

This is a quick review!!
I just love the way Kelly Creagh writes.  She's always a bit ahead of the reader and the way she writes is addicting. Varen's dreamworld is both haunting and beautiful. Lilith has him trapped there just like she has had so many before. Isobel's 'mission' is to save him before he becomes part of the nightmare he's created. The one question (which Gwen voiced) that rang in my head throughout the book was didn't he want it? To be trapped in a world besides his own? Away from his father? You can't be stolen into Lilith's realm, you have to want it. Even just the tiniest bit.

Enshadowed focused more on Isobel facing her demons and getting to Varen more than anything else. Which is fine by me...I just would have liked a bit more Varen. I was also super surprised with how much Pinfeathers grew on me in this book.

Overall, this was a lovely book and I cannot wait for the next. Because THAT ENDING. I HAD TO RE READ IT LIKE 20 TIMES.
